Powerball Reaches Over Half A Billion Dollars!
After Wednesday’s Powerball drawing left no winners, the $430 million jackpot has now risen to a whopping $510 million with a $324.2 million cash value! *FAINTS*
The numbers drawn on Wednesday were 9, 15, 43, 60, 64 and the Powerball was 4. From KSAT ABC 12, there have been 19 consecutive drawings with no winners, which mean this jackpot has been growing since June 10.
Now the odds of winning the Powerball are 1 in 292.2 million, but don’t worry, a single lottery ticket sold in Illinois matched all six numbers in Friday’s Mega Millions lottery drawing with a jackpot worth $393 million.
The largest lottery payout ever was the $1.6 billion grand prize by three individuals in January of 2016. The Powerball is played in 44 states plus D.C., the Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.
The next drawing for the Powerball is this Saturday. Good luck!
